Good Idea Friday - Soap Ice Pack


"DIY Ice pack: The soap doesn't solidify so it molds to the shape you need." 



Thanks to a fan for posting this over on our facebook page. I was pretty skeptical about this one personally, but it was easy and cheap enough to test out. Sure enough, it works! It  freezes but not solid like water does, and you can mash it up once it's frozen to better wrap around what you're icing. It's so easy, all you do is fill a zip top baggie with soap, squeeze out the air, and freeze. Soap does take longer to freeze than water though, so best to always have one on hand waiting in the freezer for when you need it.

In other news - you may have noticed posts here have been lacking. I run this blog in my spare time, and real life and work have suddenly picked up, so I don't have as much time to be on Pinterest like I usually do. This is where I would love help from my fans! I'm always in need of  ideas, both good and bad, so if you see something on Pinterest you are wondering about, either email it to me or just posted it directly on our facebook page. I should be back to posting every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in a few weeks, so don't think I've forgotten this blog.

We also had an awesome fan who shared her own attempted at the "Glitter Sugar" I wrote about on Monday. She said "So, edible glitter was an epic pinterest fail!" I think I can agree with her there. Another problem with the suggestions on the sugar was no temperature was ever mentioned for your oven, it's important to remember that sugar is fairly easy to melt, so anything over, say, 170°F is going to melt it.

    Good idea...except my toothy 2 year old would bite right through that bag, lol. I'd have to put it in something toddler-proof (if there is such a thing!).

  2. Vodka doesn't freeze.

  3. 1 part rubbing alcohol to 3 parts water works nicely at a fraction of the cost, and doesn't run the risk of getting sticky dish soap everywhere.

  4. Agreed on the rubbing alcohol/ water mix. It's cheaper, less messy if bag splits and just as effective (moldable to injury) but the bonus is that it stays colder for much longer than a regular ice pack.
